We took a studio room upper floor. Great views as promised. Studio so only basic facilities but in this case basic is a microwave, jug and toaster plus plates and utensils. Had to use the bathroom sink for water but that's ok. And dishes weren't a problem because they told us when we checked in that we should just leave...

Stayed here for a couple of nights, nice enough without being overwhelming. The weather wasn't so good, so difficult to appreciate the views through the rain and low lying mist. Very creaky floors, only heard when in bed and people walking around overhead.

We stayed here for 1 night on a trip drive down the North Island. There were 6 of us staying in a 2 bed unit and we had plenty of space. The unit was clean and tidy.

Would be good if there was a sink to wash the dishes along with some dish wash detergent. Felt guilty leaving dirty dishes on the Sunday morning before leaving. In folder about Taupo etc there was no mention of wi fi. Very comfortable bed.

Although we did not have a mountain view from our room, a walk to the end of the road provided views across the lake to the volcanic mountains, still capped with snow even mid summer. Our room was sufficiently well equipped - if a little travel worn - but the owner receptionist was helpful and obliging. The town and everything...

The rooms are clean and tidy. They are also small yet not small enough to make you feel cramped. The location is very good and close to many ammenties, the central shopping area and a short drive to some great views of the lake! Room has what you need and is great for a short stay.

It was great for a one night stay. Clean, comfortable, easy check-in, free and available parking. Wifi can only be connected to one device, for a second it's is $5. The location is really central, close to town and the beautiful lake!
